The Parker 2015 Roussanne comes from the superb Camp 4 Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County. Here, the moderate temperatures allow for a longer ripening season (resulting in a gradual and more thorough development of fruit flavors) and the gravelly soils help the vines produce wines with concentrated flavors. Roussanne, a rich, inviting varietal hailing from the Rhône Valley, is both wonderfully aromatic and flavorful. On the nose, it exudes notes of honeysuckle and ripe pear, while the palate is fresh and full-bodied with flavors of orange marmalade and nectarine.
